  1. When you imagine you present facts the world however never knew about before you mentioned them? The things about Mozart for a start is such a piece. I bet not even Mozart knew about his fetish. Stop lying to make outdated music more interesting by inflating it with no-facts.

  2. I have heard on a KidsHealth page(I think it was one about Tourette's syndrome) that Mozart died from Tourette's. Unless he physically hurt himself regularly, that makes no sense at all.

  3. Hello! Just a thing : maybe I don't understand what you mean but when Erik Satie write that he only eat white food, I think that he's not really serious… He was very poor and quite has never lived Paris so writing that he used to eat coconuts was more a kind of humour. A lot of things he wrote were ironic or, very often, absurd. In a text he explain the day of a musicien, telling he's inspired every morning betwin 10.14 and 11.02, etc… A title of published articles of him was "the memories of an amnesic". I don't know if these things are translated in english but they are very funny.

  4. My only famous composer story is that …Russian composer Serge Prokofiev slept near a ticking metronome .

  5. Wonderful music lessons …thanks ! And the trivia on composers makes me feel at home with many of my musical friends habits.
    My only strangeness is that I love to compose after mid night.
    Cheers

  6. Wasn't there a story about Mozart where he was going to play for someone and he stopped in the middle of the piece he was playinh because he got distracted by a cat running across the room
